Episode 110: James Clear – How To Build Habits Using Warren Buffett’s 2 List Strategy

James Clear is a leader who has researched and learned how the best leaders in the world form fantastic habits.  On this episode, I was inspired to hear how James has made it his life’s work to study leaders who have sustained excellence and then has shared what he’s found with the world.  I particularly enjoyed the part of our conversation where we discussed the specific ways all of us can implement and form great habits in our lives.

James Clear studies successful people across a wide range of disciplines — entrepreneurs, artists, athletes, and more — to uncover the habits and routines that make these people the best at what they do. Then, he shares what he learns in his popular email newsletter.

James teaches others to: Use small habits to multiply your mental and physical performance by 10x.  Beat procrastination and shave wasted hours off your workweek. Overcome their inner fears and actually follow through on what they set out to do.
